Dr Dre has reportedly been ordered to his ex-wife Nicole Young a sum of $293 306 (just over R4.3 million) in spousal support per month. The US producer was ordered to pay his ex-bae the money until she remarries or enters into a new domestic partnership, according to reports.
On top of the monthly spousal support he was ordered to start paying on 1 August, the Forgot About Dre hitmaker still has to continue paying for Nicole's health insurance.
Radar Online reports that the Los Angeles Superior Court judge's ruling in the matter is only temporary until a final decision is made. Social media users took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the latest developments on the hip-hop producer's nasty divorce. Check out some of their comments below:
"She’s a lawyer. She was a lawyer when she met him. I’m sure a prenup wouldn’t make a bit of difference, especially if he cheated. She probably is aware of so many loopholes and obscure laws to void any prenup anyways. Babygirl played it smart."
"One of the reasons why I’ll never ever get married ever again."
"This is a deal. At first she wanted 2 MILLION A MONTH."
"She originally wanted I think 2 mil a month plus 5 mil in lawyer fees. This is barely a dent in his annual income. He is happy with the outcome for sure."
"SHE GONNA HAVE A BOYFRIEND FOREVER!!!!!!!"
"Moral of the story... don't get married gents."
